i like the look of whats on offer: Locations in Canada or France. The price and features is good enough to have me overlook that it is is using cPanel.

chemicloud seems comparable and uses cPanel

wow. yet another great option.

Funny how these two were un-discoverable a couple of months back. Is it that there are more and more web hosting companies coming on stream?

A while back, maniqui once set it up for pieman when we were doing work for him. It was compact, easy to install (one file essentially) and did the job but was a little no-frills. It is regularly updated.

If you have a host without phpmysql but that does allow remote mysql access, or mysql access via ssh (probably the case when phpmyadmin is not preinstalled), then you can use sequel pro on your mac to manage your sql databases. That is altogether nicer and doesn’t require you to have anything on the server.

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

Thanks. But i am still not sure as to whether we need to install Admirer on our local desktop or whether it is available via a web interface on the hosting provider?

I am assuming that we use Sequel Pro to connect to the server to manage our sql DBs?

Apologies, I should have been clearer. Adminer and Sequel Pro both do the same thing: they administer MySQL databases. Your host already has to have a MySQL server installed and running. Without that, neither will work.

  • Sequel Pro: runs on your mac.
    • You need to either have MySQL remote access. Check with your host. With the former, you sometimes need to activate it, or add your own computer’s IP number as a permitted remote access IP.
    • or be able to connect to your host’s database remotely via SSH. You’ll need to switch to the correct connection window in Sequel Pro and you may need to open port 3306 on your host’s firewall. Again, check with your host.
  • Adminer: installs on the same server as your databases (e.g. your host): Here are some instructions. You then call it up via your browser and enter your mySQL database details to access an admin area that is a bit like phpMyAdmin.

There’s nothing to stop you installing both, but you don’t need both.

If your host permits remote access / SSH access, you can simply use Sequel Pro on your mac and don’t need to install anything on the server.
If your host won’t let you connect remotely, adminer is a simple way to go as it is on the same server.
